The American Public Works Association (APWA) announced Sept. 2 that major changes are in store for the annual conference and equipment show, which will be known as PWX beginning in 2016.

The new PWX brand stands for “Public Works Expo,” which will replace the previous title, “International Public Works Congress & Exposition.” The launch of PWX is part of APWA’s response to significant trends occurring in the workforce.

“This is an exciting time of change,” says APWA President Brian Usher. “PWX is a symbol of our recognition of generational trends in the workplace. PWX is not merely a new name for an old program, but a revamped annual event that will incorporate more technology and engage all generations active in the profession. And PWX will provide a setting that encourages cross-generational dialogue so everyone can learn and benefit.”

APWA Meetings Director Dana Priddy says attendees can expect changes with PWX “that will take the APWA annual conference into the future workplace.”

“We are already reviewing the latest meeting and event strategies, technologies and formats, and incorporating new ideas for learning into PWX 2016 in Minneapolis,” says Priddy. “We want attendees to walk away excited about the experience and ready to put what they learned into practice when they get home.”
